Beauty: The Truth Behind the Illusion

The Utah Women’s Giving Circle is excited to announce our Fall event, featuring a screening of the brand new film, The Illusionists, by filmmaker Elena Rossini.
Watch the trailer: http://theillusionists.org
The Giving Circle is honored to be one of the first to screen this paradigm-shifting film in the United States.
Join us in breaking down the global issue of unattainable beauty and empowering one another to commit to our own definition of beauty.
There is limited seating so please RSVP to make sure you don’t miss this important event!

The Film

Illusionists FilmSex sells. What sells even more? Insecurity.

Multi-billion dollar industries saturate our lives with images of unattainable beauty, exporting body hatred from New York to Beirut to Tokyo. Their target? Women, and increasingly men and children.

The Illusionists turns the mirror on media, exposing the absurd, sometimes humorous, and shocking images that seek to enslave us.

The Discussion

Beauty Redefined HeadshotThe work of Beauty Redefined’s Lexie and Lindsay Kite has generated enormous momentum toward a healthy and holistic view of women as more than a body.

Featured in the film, Lindsay and Lexie will join us for a post-film dialogue defining how we can each help create an environment where women and girls see their bodies as inherently beautiful.
